wip meme

I was tagged by my favourite person ever, @jeffersonjaxson :)

the rule is simple: you copy and paste the last sentence you wrote in a WIP and then tag the same number of people as there are words in the sentence.

from my epic lauryssa fic where laurel returns from the dead via the lazarus pit and can’t remember nyssa, here’s the last few sentences (because I’m just that extra™).

“And I don’t know if you know… I know I never told you, but -”

“- you and Nyssa were together?” Cisco smiles, and it’s a sad kind of smile that makes Laurel’s heart sink. “Yeah, I knew. I knew you loved her, anyway, from the first time I met her.”

I don't think they're going to do a double wedding, but perhaps there's a possibility that there'll be two weddings, if that makes sense? Like Todd was really coy when asked about November sweeps, and went, "They're engaged and their relationship will progress." So I think there might be a possibility that they may have WA and OF get married during that period, but during the episodes for their respective shows. It may explain why both casts/EPs were all ~coy about November weddings.

I would accept this 🎉

Laurel/Wildcat for the shipp thing(such wasted potential...)

who hogs the duvet: It’s still Laurel. It’s always going to be Laurel.

who texts/rings to check how their day is going: Laurel. Ted texts every now and then to ask how her day is going but if he really wants to check up on her, he’ll just drop by her work and bring her lunch. Laurel is the one who is constantly texting him throughout the day. Mostly she texts him cat memes. Which is a text exchange that usually goes like this:

Ted: stop sending me cat memes

Laurel: You always say that.

Ted: and yet you’re still doing it

Laurel: You can’t take the cat memes away from me.

Ted: baby they’re not even that funny

Laurel: Excuse you. They’re hilarious. Don’t be a grumpy cat.

who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts: Laurel. It’s easy for her. She goes out of her way to get him a pair of vintage boxing gloves for his birthday because she knows he collects them, she gets him a watch that he’s been eyeing for Christmas, and she’s always picking up little things from the store that he knows he likes “just because.” Ted, however… He has a lot of strengths but gift giving is not necessarily one of them. He does try. It’s just not his strong suit. He can’t even pick out gifts for his own kid - and really, six-year-olds are not that hard to shop for. Laurel has known Tom for like a year and even she is better at picking out gifts for him. She’s never minded that Ted is such a shitty gift giver. She knows he tries. She tells him that it doesn’t matter what he gets. It’s the thought that counts. “Sweetie,” she tells him once, solemnly placing a hand on his shoulder. “You once went to the store in the middle of the night to buy me tampons because I forgot to restock and you didn’t even bat an eye. That’s love right there.”

who gets up first in the morning: They both get up at the same time because they’ve developed a routine. They go for a run together followed by a sparring session, sometimes she makes him do yoga with her, they share a shower to “conserve water,” and then they go out for breakfast and make fun of each other’s breakfast choices before she goes into work.

who suggests new things in bed: Oooh, you know what? It’s Laurel this time. See, Laurel has lightened up and loosened up a lot in the past year. She’s completed her recovery after Darhk’s attack, she has gone through it all while staying sober, she moved away from Star City permanently, she’s working in a flower shop in Coast City (a lot more relaxing than the law, she has to admit), she’s in a healthy relationship with someone who makes her happy, makes her laugh, supports her, and believes in her, and she’s back on the streets as Black Canary. She has this whole new life with Ted and Tom and her new friends. She is, for the first time in a very, very long time, happy and at peace with her life. She’s downright joyful. Ted has become the serious one in the relationship - and it’s not like he’s some super stoic and serious guy; she’s just that happy. Near death experiences do that. They have a way of changing your life and your priorities. Sex - now that she is having it regularly - is a lot more important to her than it was. So there are certain things she’s willing to try with him that she hasn’t been willing to try with anyone else in the past. You only live once (sometimes twice if you’re lucky) and she wants to live her best life. Ted is very, very, very on board with this plan.

who cries at movies: Laurel. For the record, it’s not like she cries at every movie ever made. But who doesn’t cry at Disney and/or Pixar movies???? It’s all emotional manipulation! And it’s not like she can avoid them. Ted’s son, Tom, is still six and at the age where Disney and Pixar rule, so when she tags along with them to movies on Saturday afternoons, Ted makes sure to drop a pack of tissues in her purse before they leave the house.

who gives unprompted massages: Ted is big on giving her leg massages after workouts because he knows that her legs cramp up and she tries to power through it anyway. He also gave her a lot of massages when she was recovering. She’d get stressed in physical therapy or in the therapist’s office and he’d spend the night trying to get the knots out of her shoulders.

who fusses over the other when they’re sick: Well, it’s not technically illness but their romantic relationship literally began when Oliver faked her death and shipped her off to Ted in Coast City so he could keep her safe and help her with her recovery after Darhk’s attack. It was a long and brutal recovery, both physically and emotionally. She had a lot of setbacks so she wound up spending something like six months in and out of hospital, physical therapy, and counseling. Ted was stubbornly with her every step of the way, even when she tried to push him away.

But also, Ted boasts regularly about how he doesn’t gets sick. So when he winds up with walking pneumonia, there is a little bit of teasing at first because he had been so adamant that he never ever gets sick but then she slips right into caretaker mode and fusses over him. She even tries to make him chicken soup from scratch. It’s terrible and utterly inedible but he manages to choke down a few mouthfuls because he doesn’t want to hurt her feelings.

who gets jealous easiest: Their relationship has made the both of them weirdly chill. It’s like they’re both in perpetually good moods. Jealousy isn’t a huge problem for them. Although, with that said, there was that one time when Oliver came to town and made an ass out of himself in front of Laurel. Ted was not having that.

who has the most embarrassing taste in music: Laurel, of course. Ted complains about her music but when they’re on road trips and she’s in the passenger seat with her feet on the dash singing Britney Spears at the top of her lungs, it’s hard not to laugh. It’s hard not to completely love everything about Laurel Lance, is what he’s learned. Horrible music taste and all.

who collects something unusual: It’s not that unusual but as mentioned above, Ted collects vintage boxing gloves. Laurel doesn’t have any extensive collections of anything other than shoes but she did keep the tip of the arrow that they pulled out of her lung. Ted thinks it’s morbid and that she should let go of the past but she insists that she’s not keeping it to hold onto the past. She says it’s a reminder of how close she came to leaving. It’s pushing her to live her life to the fullest because nobody knows how much time they have left.

who takes the longest to get ready: Laurel takes forever to get ready. At this point, Ted has stopped trying to rush her along.

who is the most tidy and organized: They’re both pretty messy. Ted objects to that word, saying, “We’re not messy, we’re cluttered. There’s a difference.”

who gets most excited about the holidays: Currently, both of them. Neither of them used to be big holiday fans, but things change. Now that Laurel has adopted her brand new “joyful and happy to be alive” attitude and now that Ted has a son, they’ve both become holiday junkies. There’s a kind of excitement that kids and positive life changes bring to holidays. They are both definitely feeling that this year.

who is the big spoon/little spoon: Ted’s the big spoon. The first time she woke up with him curled around her, they weren’t even together. They were roommates and they had fallen asleep watching some really terrible movie. But it was such a different thing to wake up to, a feeling of comfort and safety that she hadn’t felt in a long time, that she almost didn’t know what to do with it. She had missed that kind of human contact in the years since she last had that.

who gets more competitive when playing games and/or sports: That depends. If we’re talking actual sports, it’s Ted. If we’re talking board games, it’s Laurel.

who starts the most arguments: They both do. They already bicker like an old married couple and they’ve only been together for a year. It’s comfortable and lighthearted bickering and honestly, they probably both have way too much fun with it.

who suggests that they buy a pet: One night while they’re getting ready for bed, Laurel pulls the covers back and then stops suddenly, turns to him and says, “You know, I’ve been thinking maybe we should get a cat.” He doesn’t say anything because he can tell where this is going. Sure enough, she follows that up by saying, “Oh, wait, I already have one.” And then she laughs for like five minutes while he has one of those “staring at the camera like you’re on The Office” moments.

what couple traditions do they have: …Is making a lot of “you look like the cat that ate the canary” jokes a tradition? Because Laurel makes a lot of those jokes. His response to that is always, “You’re never going to stop making that joke, are you?” To which she cheerfully retorts, “Nope! And you’re stuck with me. For the rest of your life.”

what tv shows they watch together: During her recovery, she spent a lot of time resting in bed or on the couch. One of the things that happened during those six months was the release of Stranger Things. She got really into it first and then made him watch it with her. He wasn’t that interested at first but he was glad something was getting her spirits up again, so he watched it with her and wound up getting into it. They are now both impatiently awaiting the release of the second season.

what other couple they hang out with: They don’t really have that many couple friends but that might change if she ever manages to get her friend, Hal, a girlfriend.

how they spend time together as a couple: Normally, they’re content to stay in and spend time with each other - and Tom when it’s Ted’s week with him - or to go out, have a nice dinner, and maybe see a movie that won’t make her cry before she has to go suit up and patrol the streets. But lately, they’ve been staying out a little bit later a few nights a week because he’s trying to teach her to salsa dance. She is not the best student he’s ever had, but she’s also not the worst. She’ll get there.

who made the first move: Technically, Ted kissed her first, but it took him forever and he only made that move after Tom complained, “Geeeeez, are you ever gonna kiss her already?” And Laurel said, bluntly, “I echo that question. Are you ever going to kiss me?” It took them a long time to get their act together. When he first met her, she was clearly struggling with her sister’s death. Then he almost died, learned he had a son he never knew about, and wound up moving away. Then she was going through a brutal recovery after her near death experience. He didn’t want to take advantage of her.

who brings flowers home: Laurel brings home flowers from the shop almost every day. She says it brightens up the house.

who is the best cook: Ted is actually really amazing in the kitchen. Especially when he’s making family recipes. Laurel regularly begs him to make his grandmother’s fricasé de pollo.

eboniangelvibez  asked:

Tati, I've seen rumblings on both Twitter+Tumblr about the possibility of WA and OF having a double wedding in November. I'm conflicted about that, especially since people in the fandom like to compare them. While they may both be great loves, OF don't have, IMHO, the history or solid background to be accurately compared with B+I. WA deserves a standalone wedding! You're at SDCC. Have you heard that too? Are OF going to be the KaraHel of the long overdue WA wedding celebration? Your thoughts?

I have heard people suspecting it, but nothing I’ve seen from the interviews (so far) makes me think it’s happening. When I get home I will go through Arrow interviews too, but I am pretty sure they will both get married at separate times this season.

anonymous asked:

You made me love Laurel Lance/Ted Grant! What about Thea being the funny sister in law to Ted? I love the Laurel/Thea friendship.

i’m always up for bringing people over to the laurel/ted ship! obviously, it’s an entirely different relationship in the comics but it could have been such a great relationship in the show. he was someone who actually respected her. he would have been so good to her. i am hashtag forever bitter.

oh yeah, thea is 100% the in law who shows up unannounced in the middle of the night with a bunch of suitcases, informs them that she’s staying with them for a few days, and then eats all their food lol. she’s also the one who will show up on any given saturday morning, yell out “I’M STEALING YOUR WIFE, DON’T @ ME” and then whisk laurel away to a spa weekend before ted even has a chance to object.

anonymous asked:

laurel lance is a lesbian and sara lance is bisexual (+they both have been with nyssa and oliver), and quentin never worries about one of them accidentally getting pregnant anymore even though they're like thirty

I mean, laurel is bisexual too in my headcanon, so there is still a chance she could get pregnant (by cisco for example). but hey, you do you. :) and I mean sara could get pregnant by rip maybe. or ollie. so quentin still has something to worry about with her, lmao.

laurel lance deserved so much better, fuck you arrow.

anonymous asked:

That pic of the Canary Sisters at the InStyle party is so funny because it's like for someone who got "fired because she didn't get along with her coworkers" and one of the coworkers that she supposedly didn't get along with, KC & CL look like they were having a blast with each other. Why would they be hanging out after the "firing" if they didn't get along? #prettybirdsflytogether

exactly! that whole “katie was fired for not getting along with her coworkers” bullshit was so stupid it was actually kind of hilarious.

if katie doesn’t get along with her cast mates then why does she hang out so often with caity lotz?

why do she and emily go on vacations together, gush about each other on twitter, bring each other up in pretty much every interview they do, publicly talk about how much they miss each other when one goes out of town for a few days, and spend most of their time cuddling?

why did she and stephen go out together to see colin’s play a couple years ago if they supposedly can’t stand each other?

why did willa go on and on about her “crush” on katie back during the first season?

why does she post so many pictures of her and david ramsey (who, just yesterday, tweeted katie and stephen saying he loved them)?

why do she and paul blackthorne gush about each other and talk about how they love working together and coming up with backstories for the lance family?

why, when talking about katie, are katrina law and john barrowman basically this gif:

if katie cassidy doesn’t get along with her fellow cast members, then why do they spend so much time talking about how much they love, respect and admire her?


Here's A Constructive Post

Best Crossovers:

1. Flash vs Arrow (Flash 1x08) - An actual coherent plot that warranted the characters meeting up and Rainbow Raider made for a great episode.

2. King Shark (Flash 2x15) - Nothing bad could ever come from including Diggle and Lyla.

3. Invasion! (Arrow 5x08) - Two words: Laurel Lance.

Worst Crossovers:

1. All-Star Team Up (Flash 1x18) - The Bee Lady is the worst villain the show has ever adapted. Also Ray and Felicity were utterly useless.

2. Invasion! (Legends 2x07) - Let’s conveniently blame everything on Barry before we make him forget he has a love of his life to say goodbye to before sacrificing himself.

3. Legends of Today (Flash 2x08) - Iris is graciously given one line to ask a question while Patty gets to shoot people.

  • arrow: *introduces us to ra’s al ghul*

Dear Amie: It’s not Olicity, you’re right. It’s Shitty Writing and Sexism & Misogyny.

Now, you may be wondering why this is specifically addressed to you. This is addressed to you because you wrote an article to say why Laurel was the biggest problem on Arrow and how it had nothing to do with Olicity. I’ll concede your point that the problems on Arrow have nothing to do with Olicity, strictly as a couple, asd a romantic pairing, there is technically nothing wrong with Olicity.

But you’re wrong about Laurel. And let’s go through it point by point.

1. Chemistry

Now, if you’ve been in this fandom any at all, you’ve heard the phrase uttered, “OMG STEPHEN AND EMILY HAVE CHEMISTRY THAT IS JUST OFF THE CHARTS” and also heard the phrase, “OMG, Katie and Stephen’s scene are as sexy as cardboard.”

So here’s the thing, those are both wrong.

The reason is because chemistry, in this context, is not the objective chemicals that make a reaction to make new chemicals kind of chemistry, but rather the subjective oh my god, i love when these two actors make heart eyes at each other, that really sells their love story.

In this context, chemistry is subjective. So what you see is not the same thing I see, is not the same thing William Shatner sees, is not the same thing Katie Cassidy sees. 

You’re sold on the happy go lucky romance of a 25 year old whose life experience includes having a lacrosse stalker in college and a 30 year old broken man who literally pined for five years trying to get back to his exgirlfrend? Congrats. You’re amazing. 

However, just because you’re sold on it, does not mean everyone is. And does not mean everyone shares your view. Presenting it as fact does not help your argument. Because I’m not sold on this couple, which intrinsically has problems for me.

You know what I’m sold on? The 30 year old man who pined for five years, trying to get back to his exgirlfriend and is trying to be man she saw and the 29 year old survivor who loves him enough to let him leave when he needs to, who is the woman who shaped him.

There are plenty of people who aren’t sold on either. There are plenty who are sold on both. You do not get to decide the baseline for chemistry.

But this “Stephen only has chemistry with emily” line is just the “one special girl” trope and I’m over it, because it just gives people an excuse for their internalized misogyny.

2. Writing

Now, something we can both agree on. The writing has gone downhill, because they saw a popular couple and decided to start shoving it in, hoping to make their big cash cow, while simultaneously ripping down their main heroine. 

In season 1, Laurel was a blatantly clear foil for Oliver, someone who doled out justice the legal way, someone who looked out for people using her real identity, and someone who instead of taking five years to decide what he wanted, jumped with both feet into helping.

Laurel had been hurt because HE LITERALLY DIED SCREWING HER SISTER, but no, she’s just supposed to get over that. She’s supposed to be nice and pretty and forgive him, even though he’s kind of a dick still. This very first scene, which you say robs her of her humanity, gives her humanity to me. She’s allowed to angry in a way that genre women are never allowed to angry at the hero. Yes, maybe it’s a little over the top, but if my boyfriend died sleeping with my sister and came back to life, I might be a little over the top too.

Then in season 2, they rip her down, because she was just too happy last season and so they put her through storylines of addiction, which would have been great, if we could have gotten more than four scenes of it. The addiction storyline was lacking because the people in her life were lacking. Both Oliver and Quentin knew about Laurel’s withdrawal from the world and did nothing about it. Her dad lied in an attempt to get her to go to a program meeting. And the reason Laurel scenes were cut to have “I’m your girl” moments which served no purpose other than to give people something to squee about.

In s3, literally every super villain has given some kind of spiel about Oliver and Felicity. Or the villains have gone after them in some way. When supervillains are giving you love advice, maybe it’s time to reevaluate your decision. Maybe when your first instinct is to say “but you can’t marry her” when a queer woman is being forced into a marriage with rape elements in it, maybe it’s time to reevaluate. And maybe it’s time when actual character development gets pushed aside for a sex scene.

Season 3 is the worst season out of all of them, with the exception of a few episodes, because flashbacks were boring and there wasn’t a lot of payoff, malcolm killing sara was never fully explained, felicity taking over episodes (like ‘the fallen’) which should have been about other people, annihilating felicity’s character, an absurd jealousy angle, Oliver’s descent into showing just how shitty of a person he actually is, not to mention the casual racism/sexism/homophobia that has been this whole “Oliver is the next Ra’s and Nyssa will be forced to marry him” that also includes elements of corrective rape, so I mean congrats. 

There are problems with the way Laurel is written, I will say that any day of the week, but it’s not because of Laurel as a mixture of characteristics and it’s not because of what we’re seeing on screen, because KCass is doing the best with what she gets. It’s because Marc & Co. are hilariously bad at having more than one female in a major role in an episode without having one of them suffer.

3. Sara Lance

Sara lance was not Laurel’s competition. Sara Lance, unabashed feminist would gouge your eyes out for comparing them, not the least of which is because Sara looked up to Laurel as the real definition of a hero.

Sara lance did not die so that you could compare her to Laurel from beyond the grave. Sara gave Laurel her jacket. Sara passed the mantle. That was symbolic, but we all knew what that meant. Sara knew that eventually her sister would get frustrated with the system. Sara knew this. Sara knew that the system had failed Laurel, personally and it was only a matter of time, before the system would fail her at her at a professional level.

Laurel spent years not being able to grieve for her sister and not being able to be angry with her, so when her sister came back, yeah she said some shit. And the thing is, had Sara been the only one in the room, Sara would have accepted that. And maybe we wouldn’t have had to spend several episodes where Laurel had to be mad at her sister, because if it had just been Sara, she would have accepted it. Sara even says “to blame her” because she feels like she deserves that criticism.

But you know why we didn’t get a scene early on about Sara and Laurel coming to terms with Laurel’s anger? Because the writer’s decided it wasn’t important. What they thought was more important were scenes of Quentin yelling at Laurel to feel happy that they had finally gotten Sara back, even though it had never once occurred to him, that the biggest burden Sara’s death brough was on Laurel, not on him.

4. The Media

Now, you take the fact that media doesn’t like Laurel Lance as some kind of divine sign that something is wrong in the universe, and the thing wrong is Laurel Lance. 

See, when you line up those articles about how Laurel is the weakest character on Arrow and she’s been the media punching bag, to me there is something almost always at play. 

Because  see article entitled “X Number of Annoying TV Characters” and almost, without a doubt, there will be an overwhelming number of women. Because women on TV and in movies and in media in general are held up to a ridiculously high standard that unless a women is being fuckable on accident due to being written that way, they are berated and beheaded by the media.

When a woman has a normal reaction to an antihero doing fucked up shit, she’s a bitch who won’t let him have any fun. This has gotten so prevalent it even has a name. It’s called the Skyler White Effect. 

This whole wazoo about Laurel being unrelateable, despite having a normal reaction to just about everything and the media crucifying her for it, let’s just call it what it is. It’s sexism. Sexism and misogyny and you played right into it. 

5. Katie Cassidy

You do not know Katie Cassidy. I do not know Katie Cassidy. The only thing we get to know about Katie Cassidy is the carefully groomed media, social and otherwise, presence that she has.

You do not know what she was thinking when she posted a tweet and you do not know what she was thinking when she deleted that same tweet. You do not know because you do not know Katie Cassidy. Citing a woman who’s reaction to bullying is well I’m not gonna do it, but I’m not gonna stop is kind of bullshit too. Because she also does not know Katie Cassidy.

Katie didn’t just endure some cyberbullying in season 2. Katie endured a literal campaign to get her kicked off the show, because her character was standing in the way of a ship that she has no opinion on. Katie literally had to deal with the same people you’re quoting high regard wanting her kicked out of a job she loves, because they think the the show should be specifically tailored to them and no one else.

Katie Cassidy is consistently the only one who gets asked about Lauriver, because guess what people want to know about romance, and everyone else is dying to ask Stephen about Olicity since he cannot shut up about it. And that’s great. They both feel passionately about their characters being happy, but you know what they don’t have?

A say in what actually makes it to the screen. They’re not writers. They’re not directors. They’re not editors. They are not the network. They do not have a say in what goes down. They show up and do a job. 

Literally Katie Cassidy could say she wanted Felicity dead, Helena to come back, and for Tommy and Oliver together in bed with her at once, and it wouldn’t make it any more true than if said it, because I don’t have a say it what makes it on screen either. She is allowed to have opinions that support her character.

She is allowed to think differently than you. That does not mean she is putting Emily or Stephen or anyone down. And Katie has always talked very clearly in “maybes” and “in my opinion, i’m not the writer” when giving her opinion which is a lot more than I can say for some people on the show.

And once again, if you weren’t there, you don’t get to have an “objective” opinion on what Katie said, because you don’t know how she said it, you don’t know if she was joking or not. You have seen something and taken it and extrapolated from it. This is a real person with a real life. And you don’t know her.

Stop hating Katie for doing the same thing that Stephen does. Because it’s transparent. It’s misogyny and it needs to stop. 

Arrow fandom, we need to talk about this
  • Laurel: *is attacked by someone, she tries to fight back, but is overpowered by the attacker*
  • Arrow fandom: Are you fucking kidding with me, how do you even expect to be a hero, jeez, fucking damsel in distress, ugh.
  • Felicity: *whenever in danger always protected by Oliver, and put in the corner until the fight is over*
